This was obviously last week. But still gives happiness so Im in recall.
In a burst of energy, I made gulab jamuns, badam halwa, murruku and thengai burphy ( in decreasing order of success). The murukku was a first time trial and I was very surprised at how easy it can be.
Since I was sharing my limited stock with only half a dozen people, I took some trouble over the packing. I went shopping for plastic jars and ended up with those green glass ones which looked much better. Serendipity was being inspired to buy small candle holders , filling them with badam halwa and covering the glasses with cling wrap. Im still a bit overwhelmed with my brilliance.
And actually delivering the goods took a whole day, having been rather out of circulation for a while.
So I had my fun tripled – cooking, shopping and visiting.
I must say, all the effort was greatly appreciated. In store bought, driver delivered deepavali-times, home made stuff is hot stuff.
